A member of President Obama’s faith-based advisory council says President Obama has yet to show any signs that he plans to follow through on his pledge to find “common ground” on the issue of abortion.
Dr. Frank Page, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention, says he is disturbed that President Barack Obama is “moving quickly” to remove the few pro-life protections that remain in the U.S. He notes the president has done more than just rescind the “Mexico City policy” and President Bush’s restrictions on federal funding of human embryonic stem-cell research.
“Nothing he’s done surprises, because he promised these things,” observes Page. “But the rapid pace with which he has done it has been very concerning to me.”
